Community Development

The Division of Community Development, within the Department of Metropolitan Development, administers grants made available from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In doing so, the division completes reports and works to help its project sponsors remain in compliance with HUD regulations.

Community Development largely divides its staff into teams to handle each of the entitlement grants received by the City. Each team is responsible for writing the performance-based contracts, monitoring each project, and completing all financial work and accounting for its respective grant.  The division's compliance team assists with the task of ensuring that construction projects are meeting code compliance standards on both a long-term and regulatory basis. The remainder of the staff manages other competitive grants or manages other construction projects that coincide with the five main grants in the division (CDBG; HOME; Continuum of Care (CoC); HOPWA; and ESG.)

The Community Development Division also administers the Indy Land Bank, an effort by the Division and the City to help return troubled properties to productive and economically viable uss, eliminate public safety hot spots and improve the quality of life in Indianapolis neighborhoods
